This 2-volume set is universally regarded as THE reference on the shoulder.

The 2nd Edition includes greatly expanded coverage of instability, the rotator cuff, and arthritis, plus a brand-new chapter on outcomes of shoulder surgery. Additionally, there is a CD-ROM that accompanies the book containing illustrative material not in the text.
